Well go figure....

Two layout ideas - one imagined as fabulous, the other as 'just getting it done'.  Once completed, I was disappointed in the one I thought would be fabulous, and was surprisingly pleased with the one I was just going to get done.  Go figure!  Here is the one I really liked...

The patterned paper is by Rusty Pickle (Under the Stars) and the background is Bo Bunny double-dot in olive.  I used my Sizzix Eclips machine and the Vacation cartridge for the title and moose cuts - isn't that the cutest moose in the world?  Here are some close-ups...

Next is the layout I was a bit disappointed with - I'm ok with it, however, I was hoping it would be fabulous.  Maybe someday I will re-do it, but here it is for now...

ETA:  Ok, I re-did the title just by adding a bit of net/mesh behind it using a Sizzix Rub-On.  The title seemed to be 'floating' to me so this gave it some foundation.
The paper is Rusty Pickle again and Basic Grey for the background.  The boy fishing silhouette is from the Cricut A Child's Year cartridge, and the bass fish is from the Cricut Camp Out cartridge.  The title was cut with the retired Sizzix Wet Paint alphabet. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have a crafty day!!

Jenn,
I think both layouts are terrific. I am just getting started in scrapbooking, (never scrapped a page in my life), and your pages give me some great ideas
Thanks for sharing

I think they are both great. The boy fishing from the A Child's Year cartridge is perfect. Wonderful job!

I think both are great! I love the silhouette of the boy fishing and the way the sunset is just peeking out in that pic on the top!
